Asian-American brother duo BEAUZ teams up with chart-topping NYC-based producer LODATO and Dutch singer-songwriter Crooked Bangs for their new single “Crocodiles,” out on the NFT-backed Purple Fly. The artists pair breezy, organic melodies with a strong and dynamic bassline to create a feel-good and yet lively track, while Crooked Bangs‘ vocals add a playful and yet powerful element to the track. Overall, “Crocodiles” packs an emotive punch with its theme of always fighting for true love (and Peter Pan-esque lyrics to go with it) while keeping the sound irreverent and fun. Crooked Bangs is the digital avatar of PollyAnna, who has previously worked with Steve Aoki, Armin van Buuren, Timmy Trumpet, R3HAB, Hardwell, and Tchami. “Crocodiles” adds to Purple Fly‘s diverse catalog, proving once again that the label stays light on their feet and at the forefront of cutting-edge music.
